Rudy Giuliani: Will He Run for NY Governor … US Senate for NY … Inquiring Minds Want to Know




Rudy Giuliani, will be or won’t he run for NY Governor or will he instead run for the US Senate seat for New York? What ever his choice may be, you can bet that the former NYC Mayor who became America’s Mayor following September 11 will have a great shot of winning for the GOP.


The rumors are ramped in what will be next in the political career of Rudy Giuliani.

The Daily News is reporting that Rudy has decided against running for NY Governor, but instead will strongly consider running for the US Senate seat instead.

However, it is being reported that by a spokeswoman for Rudy Giuliani that the former New York City mayor has not made up his mind about running for governor next year. Rumors, rumors, rumors. Maybe this bit of polling from Rasmussen might sway Rudy, according to the poll Rudy is far ahead in the Senate race as opposed to a virtual tie for the Governorship against Andrew Cuomo.

Maria Comella’s comments were in response to report Thursday in the New York Times that Giuliani had decided not to run for New York governor in 2010, according to people who have been told of his decision.

“Rudy has a history of making up his own mind and has no problem speaking it. When Mayor Giuliani makes a decision about serving in public office, he will inform New Yorkers on his own,” said Comella in a statement.

What about the US Senate seat for NY? According to a recent Marist poll, the hypothetical match up between Rudy and appointed Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has Rudy ahead 54% to 40%. I would have to agree with Real Clear Politics that if Rudy did win the election, he would not then just jump into another campaign and run for President in 2012. That is one of the arguments against Barack Obama. The NY voters are going to want to know that if they vote for him, Rudy will at least stay for one term.

But, what if Giuliani makes a bid for the U.S. Senate?  Giuliani leads U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, the Democrat appointed by Governor David Paterson to fill the vacant seat left by Hillary Clinton.  54% of registered voters statewide would vote for Giuliani compared with 40% who would support Gillibrand.  Even one-third of Democrats report they would back the Republican challenger, and Giuliani runs competitively against Gillibrand in overwhelmingly Democratic New York City.

      September 10, 2001 Guiliani approval rating: low 20′s

      Aside from the obvious horrible human carnage that can’t even begin to be quantified, one of the worst results of 9/11 was the resurgence of the political career of Rudy Guiliani. He would otherwise be languishing in appropriate obscurity.

      Nothing like capitalizing on disaster. Gotta love Amurka.

      I wish they would stop calling this guy America’s mayor. He’s “a” former mayor of New York. Not everyone in America cares for the guy (not to mention all of the drama and his disgraceful treatment of his former wife). I think America tried to tell him that with his failed election attempts since leaving the mayor’s job.

      Cuomo (the likely Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate) would TROUNCE Rudy.. & he KNEW it so he RAN AWAY….. just like he ALWAYS does… as he did when HILLARY won the nomination… it’s what he DOES.

      When he had all his marbles, he was an effective Federal Prosecutor.. successfully going after the MOB.. he was known as a “RULE of LAW” man.

      Then, he became MAYOR & REALLY started to become unglued with “hard hitting” laws mandating TIES on CAB DRIVERS… trying to CLOSE ART MUSEUMS because he was PERSONALLY offended by some exhibits & sweeping the HOMELESS population under the rug.

      Now, he decries the RULE of LAW that mandates the KSM trial in NYC as a travesty & is PETRIFIED of another attack…. ostensibly letting the terrrorists WIN.

      What happened to his “backbone”…. (does it matter)?

      He’s a JOKE now.. & his days in politic are OVER.

      Best he join FOX now & just get it done.
